Palestinian Woman Uses Hundreds of Spent Tear Gas Grenades to Plant a Flower Garden

A Palestinian woman in the village of Bilin, near the West Bank city of Ramallah, has planted a garden full of flowers, each growing from used tear gas canisters collected in clashes with Israeli soldiers during protests against the West Bank occupation. The garden marks a patch of land that Palestinians were able to reclaim two years ago after a court battle to re-route Israel's controversial security wall. The flowers with their unusual pots are a powerful statement about the seemingly never-ending violence on both sides of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.
